    Anyone watch this? The third series is out on Netflix tomorrow, and if it's as good as the first two, I'll probably have it watched by this time next week.

    Easily my second favourite TV series of all time (after Breaking Bad). Kevin Spacey's Frank Underwood character is particularly superb.

    I'm watching this, brilliant stuff better than Breaking Bad imo.

    That's a bold claim, but I reckon it's very close. Underwood is a better character than any in BB, though.

    I was never a huge BB fan though, it was good but way over hyped and certainly not in my top 5 tv.

    Season 3 is a bit silly so far, on episode 7 and not exactly desperate to watch the rest of it.

    Shame, the last 2 seasons were brilliant.

    Just finished it, not the best season but still enjoyed it. IMO wrap it up now, have a plan Season 4 and Season 5 the last and it'll be remembered as a great tv show. Try and stretch this to 7 or 8 seasons and it'll be ****.

    Thought it started slowly but the second half was superb.

    I agree the first 3 episodes were slow but it has slowly picked up and I'm on ep 7 now and it's getting very good.
